Politics and religion. Two things you're not supposed to talk about, because whenever people do it seems to end up in arguments😠, fights👊 and - worst of all - flame wars on social media🔥🔥🔥

What you really need is some calm, objective and informed chat from two people who've been in the game long enough to know what they're talking about. Unfortunately, you've got us instead ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The Holy Political Podcast is a fortnightly podcast about Christianity and politics. We interview some of the most interesting and impressive Christians in UK politics today, discuss political questions affecting Christians, and look at the good, bad and bizarre ways Christians get involved in politics.

It's mainly accurate, somewhat entertaining, and hopefully helpful. Give it a try! 🎧👌😁

For our first summer special, we chat to Dr Stephen Backhouse about whether patriotism is a Christian virtue, or whether Christians should steer well clear.

In this first half, we look at the attitude of Jesus and the early church, at whether patriotism is useful for moral decisions, at whether it is better than cosmopolitanism, and at the issue - as possibility - of a just war. Enjoy!
